Pays d'Oc IGP - German bloggers visit The Domaine - 02/2023
A group of German bloggers came to see us as part of a press trip organised by @Pays d’Oc. We wanted to give them a unique experience that would involve wine tasting combined with some fun, so they visited the domaine and our gites, enjoyed a tasting of our wines, visited our vineyards on electric scooters and then enjoyed a meal where we paired the courses with our wines. They’ve written up their visit in the articles below. Many thanks to @desbelleschoses @coucoubonheur @foodistas_food_and_sistas, we hope to see you again soon!
Notes Jancis Robinson - 01/2023
UK wine writer Tamlyn Currin has included more than a dozen of our wines in her latest Languedoc reviews for JancisRobinson.com, and we're delighted that our AOP Corbières L'Aventure 2020 scored 17 points: “Ripe, rounded red fruit that has an attractively stemmy lick of woodsy green and mushrooms and bark. Mouth-watering freshness. Fairly long. Great purity and quiet elegance. I’m really impressed with this! It’s been made with a careful, respectful hand and tastes of the grapes and the soil rather than winemaking. One of the best C&J reds this year!” Read her reviews here (subscribers only): https://bit.ly/3ekBzOd . Available in the UK via Daniel Lambert Wines Ltd.

From the latest round of Languedoc wine reviews by Tamlyn Currin (JancisRobinson.com) comes this, for our Ams Tram Gram Les Sacrés Rebus 2020: “The first sniff of this wine took me to a winery full of old concrete vats quietly bubbling with red wine in the making. It's stems and leaves, concrete and wet-mopped floors, cool brick walls and primary, raw, un-messed-with red fruit. This is generous, honest, full of pure Languedoc fruit and plump, easy tannins. Unpretentiously lovely. Bravo” - 16/20. Read her reviews here (subscribers only): https://bit.ly/3ekBzOd . Available in the UK via Daniel Lambert Wines Ltd.

Pleased to see that our 2021 Organic Pinot Noir (Waitrose, £10.99) has been chosen by The Times as one of their top-value bottles. “With Côte d’Or-aping, fat, juicy, gamey charm, this Languedoc red is easily worth a tenner. Buy it.” writes wine critic Jane MacQuitty, in her feature “The best wines you can buy for less” - read it in full (subscribers only) here: https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/the-best-wines-you-can-buy-for-less-sfk87rw5v
